For the Media
Director, Media Relations
Members of the media are eligible to receive complimentary press registrations to report on the educational programming at the Summer Meetings and both sessions of the ASHP House of Delegates.
ASHP will verify the credentials of all media representatives requesting press registrations. Qualified media representatives must be staff or freelance journalists on assignment for a publication, news service, or news site. Members of a publication's advertising, marketing, or executive staff are not considered media for the purposes of receiving a press registration.
Guidelines for Coverage
- In consideration of granting of a press pass, credentialed reporters must provide ASHP with copies of meeting-related content.
- All interviews with ASHP staff and officers should be scheduled through the ASHP Communications Division.
- Media representatives may contact session speakers, poster presenters, and meeting registrants to arrange interviews. Reporters must disclose that they are a member of the media and inform the attendee that the conversation is on the record and subject to publication in print and/or online.
- Media representatives may make audio recordings of presentations for notetaking and reporting purposes or to broadcast brief (< 1 min) sound bites. Reporters must receive prior approval from ASHP to videotape presentations.
